On today’s broadcast of the CBS afternoon series, The Talk, the ladies welcome Y&R icon, Melody Thomas Scott, who this week celebrates her incredible 40th anniversary with the show as Nikki Newman.

During her segment, Melody chats on Wednesday’s upcoming standalone episode where Nikki is in jail reflecting on her life.  Wednesday is also the exact date of Thomas Scott’s 40th anniversary with the CBS Daytime drama series.

During the segment Melody fills the ladies in on the “All About Nikki” episode, as she relates:  “I was so thrilled that they did this. It’s truly, really the life of Nikki in the entirety of the episode. It’s all about Nikki. And she’s in jail. She’s writing a letter to her grandchildren so that she can explain who she really is, how she got to where she is.  I have to narrate it, I’ve got a voice-over, a long voice-over. And then, as I’m thinking about all these different times in my life, I can’t believe I’m referring to me as her, her life, then we see the flashbacks. And for the longtime viewers, even current viewers, it is such a trip down memory lane. I mean, you are on that train and you’re not getting off…all of the clips have not been seen since they were first aired.”

In addition, Melody addresses the passing of her longtime co-star and friend, Kristoff St. John relating:  “I adored him. We all adored him. There was something very unique and magical about him. He would just draw you into his wonderful world. And all of his bear hugs, I can’t believe I’ll never get a bear hug. Going to any kind of event, any party, the first thing I said when I got there was ‘Where’s Kristoff?’ I want to find Kristoff, I want to be with him, I want to be in his air space. Because that’s the kind of guy he was, and I think that came through on camera. I think everybody sensed that, I mean everybody adored him.”

I cannot wait to see the special episode and to also see her on The Talk today. And, am also hoping that the new promotional shoot that the cast did comes out soon, because it’s been many years since a quality shoot was put out!

OMG, can’t stand that woman. When a man comes on, she’s all over him, disgusting.
I saw The Talk and Melody was absolutely beautiful. I don’t understand why she looks so downtrodden on Y&R, and that’s most of the time, not just when in crisis, as what’s going on now.

When Steve Burton signed with Y&R and was on the Talk, I believe thats when the #metoo movement should have begun! Underwood attacked Burton, dry humping him! It was gross and I felt bad for him.

I remember back when Leah Remini was on the show Donny Osmond was a guest. During the interview all the hosts were sitting on either side of him on the couch. Leah was sitting next to him. Or I should say she was practically laying all over him. She had her head on his shoulder, and she was rubbing his chest the whole time. Not long after that, the couch was gone and so was Leah. I was never a fan of the show. I only watch when someone or something that appeals to me is on. I don’t know if “the disappearance of Leah” was because of that or not. I am just saying what’s fair is fair. But Melody Thomas Scott gave a great interview. Loved it.

Hey Kevin– so those were the days! I had one high school senior son home ill for the week and he watched the show every day with me. We watched the Nikki stand-alone a day later from its broadcast and my son said, “Those scenes are so much better than what we watched all week!”

Ron, I am glad there are people like you and I that understand what Y&R was all about and how great it was and even you son knows from watching and that says a lot, THANKS for sharing Ron…By the way, I hope your son is back 100% feeling better…

ALL I have to truly say… of all the grand dames.. who have solidified and impacted this genre with their presence. Nikki , has gained entrance to the hallowed soap annuls. for me… she is the most disappointing character to have never fully WOMANHOOD.

ie:

Lucinda Walsh, ATWT
Vicki Buchanon, OLTL
Dorian Lord, OLTL
Susan Lucci, AMC
Deidre Hall, DAYS
Traci Quartermaine, GH
Katherine Chancellor, Y&R

the list is endless… Nikki , never amounted to taking charge. She, in the end kowtowed.. to Victor Newman. end of story. what’s their to cheer her on for ?

Hollywood Studios, Producers & Guilds Send Plan To Gov. Newsom and Gov. Cuomo For COVID-19 Production Restart Guidelines

On Monday, the two states with the most television and film production in the United States (California and New York) received a plan from many Hollywood studios, producers and the entertainment and production guilds of a plan and outline to be able to rejigger and restart production of your favorite shows and films.  This includes the soaps: General Hospital, The Young and the Restless, The Bold and the Beautiful and Days of our Lives.

Via Deadline: In an effort to get the industry moving-forward again where jobs were lost or put on hold, and production were completely stalled out-of-the-blue, the guidelines submitted by “The Industry-Wide Labor-Management Safety Committee Task Force (the “Task Force”) is asking for consideration and adoption for the resumption of motion picture, television, and streaming productions in an environment that minimizes the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19,” says a report for Governors Gavin Newsom of California and Andrew Cuomo of New York.

You can read the details of the report here.  While there has been no word from the Governors and their offices if they have seen the report, bets are that several more steps will be needed before anyone would head and report back to a set yet.

As one would expect, limiting contact, social distancing, regular temperature checks, ways to handle props, and a COVID-19 compliance officer for all productions are part of the proposal.   As well as virtual writers room meetings, avoiding filming on-location as much as possible and filming in front of large audiences.

So, glad to know that this major step has been taken to try to get production back on track in Hollywood and New York? Comment below.

British Soap ‘Coronation Street’ Set To Resume Production Next Week Following COVID-19 Shutdown

Will American soaps soon follow the Brits, and be able to start up your favorite soap towns again? While production entities await for guidelines from the state of California and the city of Los Angeles, across the bond, ITV’s Coronation Street has set next Tuesday, June 9th to begin filming new episodes of the popular drama.

Coronation Street had been on  10-week mandatory shutdown due to the coronavirus pandemic sweeping our globe.  The return to start up the show keeps the soap on-air throughout July and then ongoing.  There will be three episodes filmed each week at their studios in Manchester.

Along with ITV’s Emmerdale, and  other programs, Coronation Street is returning to production under the UK’s guidelines and  safety protocols for COVID-19.

According to Deadline that will include: crew members designated to a specific studio or exterior lot  …  social distancing will be observed … cast and crew will have daily temperature checks, while older and more vulnerable members of the team won’t be part of the new episodes during the initial period of filming.

In a statement, John Whiston, ITV’s managing director of continuing drama, said: “Getting to this point has taken a huge amount of work and goodwill from a huge number of people, not least our cast and crew. With the peak past, all indications are that the time is right for a return to filming.  And with the extensive protocols we have put in place, we have made our workplace as safe as possible. I’m sure our audience will appreciate having the show they love continue on air. For many who have written in it is a vital escape from all the fears and stresses this virus brings in its wake.”
